I have the 2011 Hilux invincible auto.Just clocked up 60,000 and not had any problems part from the parking sensors there sh1t.Does around 26mpg with all terrain tyres towing my Bayliner,Don't think that's to bad for a 3.0.
I had the Amorak on demo for a week 4 motion top of the range jobby and must admit I was a little concerned as its a fair bit bigger than the Hilux but only has the 2.0 diesel.However once behind the wheel I changed my mind.Its a twin turbo and has more Hp,and more torque than the Hilux along with better fuel economy.It also has more leg room in the back for the kids.
Had Navara and Animal too but kids didn't like them as there pokey in the back.

Both faultless on the towing front however he has had non stop issues with his Nivara. Turbo, fuel mass sensor, bearing, prop shaft etc. Nice car though.
The interior of the amarok is far superior IMO
Amarok is too new to know any faults but I do know any car vw take ten years to put into production using and breaking all there competitors until they break to iron there issues out on there car, should be good. Well I hope so anyway

Transmission cooler leak. Got it repaired as very expensive new. New alloy wheels fitted on a recall. That's about all that springs to mind.

The Amorok has a automatic holdback especially handy when towing as you don't roll back on a hill.
It seems to have enough torque from a 2.0 ltr twin turbo engine

Thanks for all the input guys so far chaps. I think its between the Nav & the Amarok then.

The Nav is coming in at 21,250 + Vat, the Amarok is dearer at 30,000 + vat. It appears I've missed the 0% offer and as we move into the new quarter the prices have risen

Guess its time to go for a test drive in each. I'm thinking Auto but everybody says go manual

Who has what ?

I have manual amarok. Has the auto hold on the break which is simply amazing when towing! However would like an auto as I'm a lazy driver :-)
